Resistance is futile. Just go with the flow and take a seat, nod at the proprietors, and wait to be served whilst being reasonably submissive. Try and find a beer menu - itís like a book - and wait until approached. Eventually the atmosphere will warm up and you will feel part of the atmospheric experience. Check out the beer cellar through a window, try and find a beer from a significant year, and just be happy you are experiencing a part of beer history. Best bar in the world.

Best pub Iíve been to. Great atmosphere, friendly owners and a mind blowing catalogue of really special, rare and aged beers, both on tap as bottle.

A review without rose-tinted spectacles... Ambience: In the front itís a bit dank and smelly. The back patio is a bit less ístuffyí. Chamber music in the background is not my thing. Itís quite dirty and doesnít seem very hygienic. Service: The lady told me it would take 5 minutes to get my beer, thatís ok. The fact that it took 25 minutes wasnít ok. Selection: Geared towards aged beers. Sometimes it works, sometimes not so itís a gamble. Possibly an expensive one. Thereís a good choice of Lambic. If you take away the aged beers then the selection is not so great. Value: Prices seem ok. Many beers are around Ä3.50.

Visited on our recent trip to Europe. We stopped in for a couple of beers would plan to go back for a longer visit in the future. Old school looking bar inside with random seating both in and outside. We sat outside that had a clear cover over us where the local cat sat above us. It lives up to its outstanding list of beers that comes in a large beer bible that weighs 5 pounds. One of the largest selections (not quite the best) that Iíve ever seen. The service was great as the staff greeted us immediately and provided suggestions on where to sit and what was available. Drank vintage Rodenbach that was still holding its own. The ambiance was very laid back with its share of locals and pockets of beer nerds from other countries. Overall, lives up to its reputation on selection, price and service. The location is not readily accessible by everyone but worth the 45 minutes drive North from Brussels if you are willing to drive. Plan to visit again on a future trip to Belgium.

We visited Kulminator last year in our trip to Antwerp. Since you cross the door there is a feeling that you are in a special place. The interior is nothing like the modern beer bars, this place is part of history. Full of beer lovers from all around the world. Their vintage bottle list is endless and reasonably priced. We had a lovely evening in the backyard terrace.

Best beer pub in Europe. Unlimited selection of beers, mostly Europeans, many vintage ones, and most importantly not expensive. Friendly owners, great atmosphere.

I will preface this review by saying I only had time to enjoy one vintage beer before catching the last train back to ghent. This small bar is absolutely loaded with beer memorabilia. The proprietor was sitting at one of the tables with loads of papers and empty bags strewn across it. I sat down at the bar and ordered a 2005 orval and stared in awe at their massive beer list while harpsichord music played quitely in the background. This place feels like it has loads of history and really knows how to curate a beer list but overall from an ambiance perspective wouldnít be a place iíd like to hang out in for more than just a beer. I appreciate the years of love it must have taken to achieve such a wonderful cellar.
